FOSW03 - Statistical Modelling of Scientific Evidence

I will give some examples of ways in which mathematical and statistical issues relevant to Forensic Science have arisen during my seven years as Chief Scientific Adviser to the Home Office, and also reflect more widely on the role of a scientist appointed to this role in Government. Some of the aspects of my 2011 report into research into Forensic Science remain relevant today and indeed pose challenges for all the participants in this conference. I hope that my talk will also be an opportunity to thank the Newton Institute for playing its part, alongside other national and international research organisations, in raising the profile of this important discipline.
